• Cooking Time: 10 to 15 minutes
  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation Time: .5 hour


  • Patties
  • 1 lb. Ground Meat
  • 1T Fresh Garlic
  • 1T Salt
  • 1T Black Pepper
  • 1 t. Cayenne Pepper or any red pepper
  • 1 t. Basil
  • ½ t. Ground Cumin
  • 1 t. Ground Cilantro – or fresh cilantro to taste


  • Directions for Patties:
  • Make very large, very thin patties – easiest if you press them between two pieces of wax paper. Set aside.
  • Directions for Filling:
  • 1 Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese – or Mexican Melting Cheese
  • 1 Cup finely Chopped Onion
  • 1 cup Refried Beans
  • Jalapeño finely chopped – as much as you like. I only use about ¼ of one.
  • On only one side of patty, spread a thin coating of refried beans, add cheddar cheese, onions and jalapeños - up to about ½ inch from edge of patty – fold in half. Pinch all the edges together. Grill and serve on a four tortilla with lettuce and tomatoes. Taco sauce, Guacamole and Sour Cream optional.


My Dad used to make all kinds of different stuffed burgers on the grill. My daughter and I decided to get creative one day and came up with this recipe. It's still a family favorite.
